Managing Users and Groups
To access the application services and objects in the Informatica domain and to use the application clients, you must have a user account.
During installation, a default administrator user account is created. Use the default administrator account to log in to the Informatica domain and manage application services, domain objects, and other user accounts. When you log in to the Informatica domain after installation, change the password to ensure security for the Informatica domain and applications.
User account management in Informatica involves the following key components:
- You can set up different types of user accounts in the Informatica domain. Users can perform tasks based on the roles, privileges, and permissions assigned to them.
- When a user logs in to an application client, the Service Manager authenticates the user account in the Informatica domain and verifies that the user can use the application client.
- You can set up groups of users and assign different roles, privileges, and permissions to each group. The roles, privileges, and permissions assigned to the group determines the tasks that users in the group can perform within the Informatica domain.
- Privileges and roles
- Privileges determine the actions that users can perform in application clients. A role is a collection of privileges that you can assign to users and groups. You assign roles or privileges to users and groups for the domain and for application services in the domain.
- Account lockout
- You can configure account lockout to lock a user account when the user specifies an incorrect login in the Administrator tool. You can also unlock a user account.
